7:45pm (Local) 13 May @ ANZ Stadium, Sydney.
NRLTweet Game Summary: The Dragons beat the Bulldogs at ANZ but looked home up 15-0 at half-time. Canterbury fought back and had every chance to snatch it late but lost 15-10.
Injuries: Michael Lett (Hammy), Frank Pritchard (Head Knock), Greg Eastwood (Cork), Mickey Paea (Knee)
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Michael McLucas
4 - Darius Boyd, STI
Continues his good form at the back. Always times his moves perfectly in backline moves to gain metres or points.
2 - Dan Hunt, STI
Great performance up front especially in the second half when the Dogs had the Dragons under huge pressure.
1 - Frank Pritchard, CBY
Had hearts in mouths of Dragons supporters every time he touched the ball, just couldn't find the support to get an offload away.
Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Dan Hunt, STI
Hit very hard in defence and was a regular metre eater in attack. A big reason the score was 15-0 at half-time.
2 - Darius Boyd, STI
The most valuable player on the St.George-Illawarra roster returned from injury and just makes them a more dangerous team. The Dragons have opened up the attack in 2011 and Boyd is thriving getting the chance to run the ball wider of the ruck..
1 - Trent Merrin, STI
Alongside Hunt - was the catalyst to the Dragons lead at halftime. Got through his work and rarely gets pushed back when running the ball.

7:45pm (Local) 13 May @ Centrebet Stadium, Penrith.
NRLTweet Game Summary: Full credit to the Panthers - they rolled through the middle of the vaunted Brisbane defence all night en route to a commanding 33-10 win in Penrith.

2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Haylen Southon
4 - Luke Lewis, PEN
Came back from a lengthy injury spell to score a try. Lewis appeared the catalyst to unlock the Panthers attack, and put in a massive effort on his return game.
2 - Corey Parker, BRI
High workload as usual and scored a great try on halftime.
1 - Michael Gordon, PEN
Despite suffering a season ending injury, Gordon was dangerous in attack before the injury - kicked 4/4, set up two tries and scored one himself.
Judge: Matthew Duncan
4 - Michael Gordon, PEN
TBA
2 - Luke Lewis, PEN

5:35pm (Local) 14 May @ AAMI Park, Melbourne.
NRLTweet Game Summary: Pinch someone next to you. Not only did Canberra win for tne first time since March, they beat Melbourne 20-12 in Melbourne to do so.
Injuries: TBA
2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Greg Delaney
4 - Dane Tilse, CAN
Running for a mammoth 154 metres Tilse took the fight to the Storm pack and got the Raiders on the front foot.
2 - Shaun Fensom, CAN
With 135 metres, 44 tackles, 6 tackle breaks and a line break Fensom was the glue that held this performane together.
1 - Brett White, CAN
Brett White's best ever game. Made 134 metres with ball in hand and belted his former team mates with 22 tackles.
Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Shaun Fensom, CAN
Can I give it to David Furner for taking the blinkers off the team and letting them play footy? No. Ok go with Fensom. The kid can play. For whatever reason Furner believed Josh Miller was a better fit as a starter at lock in recent weeks but Fensom
2 - Dane Tilse, CAN
His performance adds weight to the theory that the Raiders almost have too many props - because when Tilse gets quality minutes like this (50) he can be a beast like he was against Melbourne.
1 - Blake Ferguson, CAN
Simply for that try... yes the Raiders led 14-12 with 9 minutes left but that bit of brilliance (from a great catch and pass by centre Joel Thompson) sealed the biggest upset of the season for the Raiders when he chip kicked, tip toed down the sideline and beat Billy Slater for pace to score.

Took control of the game in the last 20 minutes to get the Cowboys the win. Had 2 Tries and 6 goals for 20 points.
2 - Jarryd Hayne, PAR
Set up 3 tries and scored one himself played more like a 5/8 than a fullback. Back to his best.
1 - Willie Tonga, NQL
Had 2 tries, near unstopable running off Thurston.
Judge: Craig Buchanan
4 - Johnathan Thurston, NQL
Led the cowboys all over the field pin point accurate passing, 2 tries and kicked well, an all round standout.
2 - Matthew Bowen, NQL
Set up a double, played well, was in the right places at the right times like a good fullback should be, and helped inspire the Cowboys.
1 - Jarryd Hayne, PAR
A welcome return for Eels fans, Jarryd played positively scored a try, and ignited the Eels for most of the game.

2011 @NRLTweet Player of the Year Votes 
Judge: Ben Hoese
4 - Paul Gallen, CRO
After carrying a monster work load, scoring a try, and getting injured, he still looked like a million bucks.
2 - Paul Aiton, CRO
Kept the team rolling forward putting the Roosters on the back foot in the first half before a serious leg injury forced him off.
1 - Stewart Mills, CRO
The young 70's cop look-a-like made an impressive debut. Strong under the bombs, and powerful with the ball.
Judge: Dane Neville
4 - Paul Gallen, CRO
Scored a try, great in defence and didn't stop hitting the ball up all day.
2 - Anthony Tupou, CRO
Had 15 hit ups, 6 very good offloads and was good in defence.
1 - Stewart Mills, CRO

He's improving with each game and this one, was no exception.

Controlled the game beautifully with good direction and a great kicking game. Kept the game at the right end of the park for the most part.
